30 day fitness challenge/photo dump

Whew!! It's been an intense few days!!
 I've been working out like a crazy girl! I needed to get off a few pounds I packed on when I was with my family after my grandpa's death. Yeah... we like to eat and... it was a sad time so needless to say, my caloric intake was tragic last week. I think I've evened it out now, so I should be safe but seeing as how I'm visiting Japan in October and I fully intend on buying clothes I think I need to work off more than those past few pounds. 

So in saying that I've decided to join the 30 day fitness challenge over at Bueno Bueno  and I'm actually pretty excited about that. I'm technically on day 3 of my workouts. On Tuesday I only had a hour of yoga because my teacher had to leave early. Sad face. Wednesday I worked out with my friend Tianna at a local gym thanks to our amazing discovery of groupon!!!! Seriously. Okay, time out about our work out conversation, groupon is AMAZING. It's free to join, and you never know what's going to happen. They email you daily deals for things in your area and sometimes it sucks, but other times its ah-mazing. Like... out 10 workout classes for $35 instead of $210. Yeah. Exactly. So anyway, it's worth joining GROUPOOOOOON . 

Now back to your regularly scheduled program. So we did that workout class on Wed. night and then I came home and ran for a half an hour, and today I did two hours of yoga and then walked through the botanical gardens for an hour and a half. So... excited about the 30 day challenge, you'll see lots of entries about that. (hopefully) Annnnd I definitely encourage you guys to take up the challenge with me!!

So on to our next subject! 

I promised you a photo dump and YOU SHALL HAVE IT! 

during our drive to upstate ny
how pretty is this view???
and this one... oh my gosh. aric took this one
though, i can't really take credit for it...
during our botanical gardens walk
this reminds me of christmas. it made me happy...

So yeah... botanical gardens walk seemed like a good idea until I was in jeans and it was in the 90s. We were sweating so bad that we were both dripping, and I was sweating through my jeans. Yeah. Visibly sweating through my jeans. Gross. It was baaaad. 

So, I'm off for the night! Have you guys done anything fun lately? If you guys are working out, what do you do to work out?
